The odd factoid's life consists mostly of two parts, both of which are filled with boredom. In their first part of life they spend most of their time wandering aimlessly through the countryside. This is where they are born, and it is also where they eventually die. It is a simple matter for a group of odd factoids to amass in a large enough number so as to be able to attack other odd factoids, as they are a simple and rather dim-witted sort of being. This is what happens in their second part of life, when they enjoy this list of interesting facts. Odd factoids are not intelligent enough to notice that some of them are slightly different from others. It's an important fact about them that they don't think anything is different. If they were to think that anything was different, that would imply that some of them were more different than others, and so they'd have to admit that they were less different than the others. And then they wouldn't be so different anymore.
